The famous Amiibo Figures

Over the past few months, Nintendo’s amazing creations dubbed Amiibos, have been making news. A weird phenomenon took over when the amiibo figures became exceedingly popular not only for their rarity, but for their interesting little factory defects that appear to raise the value. After seeing a dual-wielding Samus and a legless Peach, fans might have thought they have seen all the best defects.

Now comes the word via Twitter and Reddit, that a three-armed Princess Peach Amiibo is already on eBay. Another one gives forth the picture of an incomplete Luigi, where Luigi is missing the trademark ‘L’ on his cap. Apparently this is not just a one-off thing as some users mentioned that they came across the same defect with Luigi. Finally, what I felt was the coolest one, was a dual-wielding Pit via Twitter.

It seems that Luigi has been confirmed legit as it has been seen by more than one person, but as for the other two it is still up in the air. It begs the question as to why there are so many defects. It could be that all these defects are due to Nintendo attempting to satisfy the demand faster than their ability to perform proper quality control. However, these defects do not seem to be negatively impacting sales; Amiibo sales have reached 710K in the U.S. since their release in November.
